Not only am I getting fat, but now I am officially elderly!?!

LOL! I am dying here. Because I am over 35 (barely, BTW!) I qualify for special prenatal care and yesterday I received the paperwork about it all including my referral to the specialist. The reason for the referral on my paperwork...ELDERLY MULTIGRAVIDA!!! Whoa...seriously?!?! You know when you are pregnant (esp. unexpectedly so) you are certainly not feeling your most attractive as the baby bump and many other squishy lumps are starting to appear and then the hospital sends me something like this telling me that I am officially elderly. Between that and the fact that they chose to put the coffee cart directly in front of the OB clinic (that is a post for another day) have me re-thinking my choice in hospitals. LOL!

But seriously, besides a huge blow to my ego, everything is going fine here. Actually last night I was laying on the couch and I can't actually feel the baby move yet, but I could definitely tell that the baby was awake and swimming. I kept getting different pressure points on my belly where I just could feel increased pressure as the baby moved around. No little flutters yet, but enough to know that the baby is doing well.

I have been really busy this week, but I really don't have anything that I can share because it has been magazine work. I did complete another cj. This is my entry in Mitchell Kraft's cj. His theme is about all the different kinds of crafts that you do. I included a couple of examples of things that I do and then did a lot of journaling.

I have lots of plans this weekend for crafting, but probably not a whole lot that I can share as most are gifts for people that read this blog so I wouldn't want to ruin the surprise.

I hope that everyone has fun plans for thanksgiving. We are doing a simple family dinner here with the 3 of us. I have to figure out our actual menu and make a final grocery run today. Think that there will be any bread crumbs left??? I am crossing my fingers!

Man if your elderly...I am almost dead! LOL! I cannot believe the letter actually said that.

Hey Christi,

I just saw your great news! Congratulations. And believe me, age is not about the numbers. Good luck with everything. I'll check back to see how you are doing.

Don't worry I had that too written on my notes hanging on the end of the hospital bed...and I was 30 then...

Glad to hear everything is going well!
Elderly, I think not!
I'm 35, too and that is not old at all ;)

You are so not OLD! Hope you had a great Thanksgiving! Can't wait to see what you created this weekend - when you can share it that is!
Have a great week.
